Alex's Story

20d ago ...

Lesson Learned...the Hard Way

70d ago ... I had originally intended to write this blog with the title 'How Rockstar Managed to Lose a Loyal Customer," but I decided after some careful deliberation that ultimately, the context of this blog wouldn't exactly justify an entire company boycott. Some of you may disagree after reading onward, so feel free to - as always - share your opinions in the comments section. Rockstar Games has alwa...

Gamer Girls Magazine: Universally Insulting Gamers

75d ago ... There’s been this huge buzz growing over a brand new magazine called Gamer Girls. At first sight, one would see that title and think, “What in the world could be wrong with a magazine dedicated to female gamers? How sexist is it to be upset at the notion of a magazine designed to celebrate women who love games?” Well, the answer is that yes, there is sexism involved when discussing Gamer Gir...

Three Things Bravely Default Does Better Than Final Fantasy XIII

122d ago ... It’s almost a unanimously agreed-upon fact that Final Fantasy XIII is a terrible, terrible byproduct of a once-shining corporation now consumed with greed. It is because of this very game that many Final Fantasy loyalists thought Square Enix bit the dust. But in February of 2014, something amazing happened: The JRPG giant brought to life a fantastical masterpiece of epic proportions. This game,...

167d ago ... With the announcement of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and Rayman: Legends for next gen systems, gamers everywhere chose sides and voiced their opinions.

At the beginning of every consoles life, comes a dry period. Wher...

What I would do as CEO of Nintendo.

190d ago ... Note: This isnt all i would do, these are just 13 descision within the realm of possibility that could help Nintendo in its struggle with the Wii U. What i do if i was CEO of Nintendo. 1. Put Xenoblade Chronicles on the eshop for $29.99, this would build hype for X as well as attract all the people not willing to pay 70 bucks for it at GameStop. 2. Fund a Resident Evil 2 remake a la the...

My Game of the Year Awards

Prizes at the Speed of Internet

288d ago ... In the past year and more recently in the past few months we at HAVA were trying a couple different prize payment solutions. I don't think it's any big secret (especially to the winners) that none of them was as fast as we would like. The good news is we just changed things up again and September prizes are already paying out. Users that chose PayPal have already had their prizes issued, an...

Under the Knife: Broken Games and Reviews

316d ago ... By now I'm sure most of you (particularly the PC crowd) have seen the fissure that has split the Total War gaming community in two. For those of you not in the know, Total War: Rome II has just been released and it has been stirring a lot of controversy. Not only was this game released in deplorable condition, but big name publications are praising it as a fantastic real-time strategy game that...

The Hidden Problem with Digital Gaming, Next-Gen and Beyond

318d ago ... This is my very first blog so forgive me if I sound a little naive. I wanted to discuss this because of the certain issue I'm sure a lot of you have had to deal with today. I just finished downloading a little game called Grand Theft Auto V on my PS3, which took me approximately 15 hours to download. 15 HOURS, and it is still currently installing and has been for about 20 mins now. I am very gl...

Sega, please don't half-ass your localization like this

319d ago ... And this goes to pretty much any company being stingy with localization. Three weeks ago, one of the best console music games that doesn't involve plastic instruments finally landed stateside. You probably don't know because Sega hasn't done anything to tell people. It's called "Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F," The FIFTH game in a series based on the digital singers, "vocaloids." You want a qu...

Gaming Juggernauts Are Finally Listening

332d ago ... Yes ladies and gentlemen, the big, brash companies that think they can dictate to gamers what they want with little regard to anything else have finally learnt they can't. I'm not just talking about the E3 backlash that Microsoft received, but it also seems it has had a knock on effect with other companies reacting too. Customer service economy Believe it or not, customers have a bigger...

The Watchlist: Teslagrad

337d ago ... "Teslagrade is a 2D puzzle-platformer, where you play as a young lad who suddenly finds himself embroiled in an ancient conflict that will shake the foundations of his enture existence, and bring a gruesome truth to light." Teslagrad first caught my eye while browsing Steam Greenlight and the recent demo affirmed those initial impressions. Teslagrad is shaping up to be something special. Set...
